What opinions do others have about enabling System Protection on a separate Data partition (D)?

I do not recommend this normally because System Restore only restores OS and Programs anyway, so why have it possibly interfere with keeping the latest data set intact on D in case C needs Restore or Reimaging.

I may be missing something. What do others think about this?

A:Should System Protection be Enabled on a Data partition?

Yes. As I mentioned in another thread for previous Versions.

I cant find anywhere on Google to help me disable the write protection on my D: drive, can someone here tell me?

A:My D: drive says it has write protection enabled

Hi nitros, welcome to TSF !

What's D: ? Is it a HDD, a partition on the same drive as C:, an USB thumb drive, the CD drive ? If it's the CD drive the message you see is normal.

What's the exact error message and when do you get it ? Post a screenshot if needed (press the print screen key, go to start => all programs => accessories => paint, click edit => paste, save as .jpg and attach the file to your next post).

What are your complete system specs ?

What OS do you use ? You wrote Win98 under your profile, do you mean Windows XP Pro ? Go to start => run and type winver to make sure. The support section for Win98 is here

AVG 2014 (free edition) message: "Identity Protection is inactive and cannot be enabled in AVG."
 
Message appeared after a recent update. Running XP Pro, 32 bit.
Is the "Identity Protection" an essential feature?

A:AVG Identity Protection is inactive and cannot be enabled.

AVG bills this feature as follows:

As the title says, I can't write to my SD card because it has write protection enabled, even though I did not enable it.

It just suddenly happened. The lock slider is not set to lock. I've tried some methods around the net but none of them worked.

Some people have suggested this :

If the card does not have a write protect tab, then it is probably a software issue. Try this:

open Regedit and navigate to
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrrentControlSet\Control\StorageDevicePolicies
If there is a WriteProtect key (REG_DWORD) then
1 = Write Protect On
0 = Write Protect Off

If there is a 1, then change the 1 to 0 to disable write protection.


However it seems my system does not have a "StorageDevicePolicies" entry in the registry. I can get down to "Control" before hitting a brick wall on that method.

Thanks in advance.

Nevermind, it appears that there's physical damage to the card reader. The casing around the reader has cracked up and stuff.

Just another repair I'll have to get done in the states when I return.

I'd like to **** my PC but the above kill-joy won't have it.

I'm running XP home edition, service pack 3, build 2600.

If you can help, try and keep the geek-speak to a minimum - I'm just a casual user and, a little backwards when it comes to this sort of stuff.

Will sell soul for solution.

Thanks in advance for any help offered.

Cheers.

A:Style XP cannot be enabled on this system.

Go to start, control panel. Click on classic view on the left. Go to display. Under the themes list, do you have Windows XP listed? If so, select it and click apply. If not, go to the appearance tab. Under Windows and Buttons, do you have Windows XP style? If so select it and click apply.
If not, go to start, then click run. In the box type services.msc and press enter. You should get the services console (hopefully it will work on XP home - I'm on XP pro and I don't know). Scroll down to where it says Themes. Double click it. Set the startup type to automatic, and click start if it's not started yet. Then try the steps in the first paragraph again.

On my dell D630 Laptop i have installed Windows 7 Ultimate. This laptop has got compatible TPM chip. I have enabled everything in bios as well as in OS to get Bitlcoker working.

OS is installed on c: drive. I have other drives as well d: and e:. For C: drive i get enable / disable bitlocker. This drive is shown in control panel - Bitlocker.

What can be the possible reason.

A:Bitlocker not getting enabled on Non System drives

Hi Amarjeet and welcome,

Have a look at the default account policy's here, I have a feeling that there's a lock out policy for drives not formatted in Win 7 (or something like that):

Type gpedit.msc to open the group policy manager. Navigate the tree to Local Computer Policy\Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\BitLocker Drive Encryption\.

Look at both FIXED and Removable drives as I'm not sure how windows differentiates the sata drives.

With the other drives, it's always best to freshly reformat them in windows 7 as NTFS before applying bitlocker encryption. So check this as well.

Let me know if you are successful. Meanwhile I'll try to find a technet article that I read a few months ago with a lot of bitlocker help and post it up for you to read.

what is the suggested practise on this forum if you do have system restore enabled ,KEEP it running if you get infected ?or disable system restore when there is an infection?if system restore is NOT enabled and you get infected ,create a restore point ; I ask this as I see on another thread it is mentioned that system restore is disabled as an infection is on the computer as I understand it; it is far better to have an infected restore point to roll back to if necessary in the cleaning process than to have NO restore points at all?what are this forum's suggestions ,views and opinions on this point please and the rationale for them

A:System Restore ; Keep Enabled Or Not When Known To Be Infected?

As I understand and I'll pass along the explanation. It's better to have the infected point available. Once cleaned then you eliminate and create anew.Unfortunately, some anti-virus vendors recommend disabling System Restore before attempting malware removal so many folks still follow that advice. Turning System Restore off and then turning it back on has some risk associated with it since that feature does not always work as intended. Further, there is always a possibility of something going wrong during the malware removal process and you end up with more problems. Without a restore point to fall back on, you are then stuck with a limited means of restoring your system such as a Repair Install or Reformat. Although System Restore is not 100% guaranteed to work all the time, it at least gives you another option. When the system is clean, then the OP can create a new Restore Point and purge the old ones to prevent accidental re-infection.See "System Restore and malware removal - what is best practice? ".Also read Quietman7's reply today here (post #2)http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/117374/what-happens-if-i-restore-and-have-a-virus/

Hello,

Whenever i access the internet through my wireless connection, my system slows down considerably. When i use wired Lan, everything works fine.
Most noteably when i try playing games online, i get a serious drop in fps, using wireless. (5-10 fps vs. 60-100, samge game same exact config etc.)
I attached my DxDiag, if you need anything else please let me know.

A:System slowdown when wifi enabled.

Wireless is by nature slower then a wired connection.The bandwidth is also less. Then take into account that the ethernet signal go`s through a couple transitions when using wireless. Ethernet to RF = Radio Frequency back to ethernet. Upgrading to wireless N may help. Also some may report no problems using wireless for gaming. The reasons for the problem(s) you experience can be numerous. Some being outside of your control. Including outside RF interference from other devices. Micro-wave ovens, cordless phones, certian types of lighting to name a few.

Hi (sorry, wasn't sure which section to post this in) we're trying to restore a hp g60 214em vista home premium laptop. Allsorts going wrong with it! When I open Recovery Manager it asks me what I want to do, so I click system recovery. The laptop then restarts and the screen eventually comes on to start the recovery to factory settings. BUT...the wireless button doesn't turn blue for some reason (it works fine when the laptop starts up normally) and it says before you continue with the recovery, to make sure that all external devices have been taken out and that the wireless is enabled! No idea how to get it to come on? Any help would be brilliant, thanks

This is a repost from another forum as requested by the moderator
I have ran the Frst64 application and have attached the results.
Description
I have a problem with the system icons, specially the NETWORK and ACTION CENTER icons, they are disabled and I can't enable them.
This is on a HP Pavilion dv6 notebook, 64 bit,  P/N WQ627UA#ABC, running Windows 7 Home Premium, sp 1.
The main issue with this problem is that there is no WIFI icon in the notification area of the taskbar, and therefore I cannot search or see available networks. I cannot search in the Networking center either.
Now I know that it is not a hardware issue because I have done two tests.
The first test was to restore the laptop to it's original status by restoring from the recovery partition. Then all is well, the icons are there and I can see the available networks.
The second test was after going back to the problem setup I activated the HP Quick Web feature, and again all is well. (the HP Quick Web feature is a software that launches on startup before Windows starts, it allow the user to surf and check mail, ect.)
I have tried quite a few proposed solutions.

Hi

Since installing Windows 10 I've had a problem with System Restore. I've searched the web (including this forum) but so far have not found anyone with my particular problem. I'm not saying they're not there, just that I've not found them yet.

As you can see from the attached graphic, I can access the System Restore panel but System Restore for the Windows drive is turned off (orange box) and the means of restoring to an earlier restore point as well as Create are greyed out. The ONLY thing the window allows me to do is to go to the Configure panel. When I get there I find that System Protection is disabled and I cannot turn it on. However, my system IS using some space (blue box) although I have a sneaky suspicion that has not changed since I installed W10.

My question therefore is really: how do I enable System Restore? I am sincerely hoping that someone has a possible solution to this and any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Tracey

PS After writing the above I did a search in the registry for System Restore but there were only about six or seven references. I also had a quick look at Services and noticed that VSS was stopped. Following a search which revealed that System Restore might depend on it I started it. I then signed out and then back in again but I still can't get System Restore enabled.

A:System Integrity Scan Wizard, Security System Protection Control Panel

The blank popup appeared to be repopulated with information over time...apparently the spyware refreshed itself. I also learned from Task Manager that all of my popups were from the System Integrity Scan Wizard. After some more searching, I found the name (in my case, yzqrqzkp.exe) and told Norton Firewall to block it from accessing the internet. I used HijackThis to fix it and then deleted it and a namesake (YZQRQZKP.EXE-1253B76A.pf) from Windows\Prefetch (not sure that was necessary but deleted it anyway). My only concern is that from what I read, there should have been another copy in \Local Settings\Application Data, which I didn't find.

My PC is infected with 3 malware popups named Security System Proctection Control Panel, System Integrity Scan Wizard and Security System Warning (the last one telling me I have Abebot). I have tried to get rid of them with Kaspersky Antit-Virus, Adaware, spyware sweeper, and SpybotSD, but they are still running. I didn't run the online scan by Kaspersky because I have the most recent version installed and running on my PC. When I ran a rootkit scan with KAV, it took just over four hours and reported my PC was clean. So for whatever reason Kaspersky is not picking up these three forms of malware.

Hello,
 
I have recently successfully cloned my Old primary 1TB Western Digital HDD onto my new 1TB Samsung EVO SSD to increase hard drive performance to give it a quick boot up and to enable Windows and my programs to load a lot quicker and perform better with multi tasking. My laptop is one of the bigger 17inch Acer models which comes with two hard drive bays.

A:My sli enabled system doesnt perform any better than just a single 7800

You have found out what I have been saying for a while. Sli is just a gimmick to sell more video cards. The tech is not new; in fact it is almost 10 years old.

As you have found out a single card often gives almost as good of performance as two. In order to use sli, the app / game you are using must be written to make use of it. I doubt the 05 really does this. You MIGHT see a difference if you use 3D06.

Hello!
I've been reading for a while, but decided to become a member only day before yesterday to post being unable to find solution. I do apologize in advance if this is a dumb question or answered earlier

I would like to nuke system for clean install. I understand there will be system reserved partitions, however, my main concern relates to OS and DATA partitions - Please review attached screenshots and advise



150 GB for C (OS) drive?
30 GB for RECOVERY?
Remaining for DATA?

I am unsure where did I read RECOVERY should be the last partition - how would this be accomplished?

Thanks in advance for prompt response

A:Partitioning UEFI enabled system for clean install

I would have to ask you to be more precise about exactly what you want to do.

For instance, if you are going to wipe the drive and start over by installing Windows 8.1 by yourself, you really do not need a Recovery Image partition (last one) because you will not have a factory image to place in it.

You have to be careful when pre-partitioning. It can be done, but if not done correctly, you will get error messages about not being able to create certain partitions.

A Recovery Image partition is normally just a little larger than the image placed in it. It is created by creating a partition, like the OS partition, and then shrinking it to allow unallocated space for that partition.

The other partitions, Recovery Tools, System, MSR, and OS are created automatically by the install, and these are the critical ones you have to be able to create if you do it manually.

The actual sizes of your OS or Data partitions will depend on how you use your system. A 150 GB OS partition would work fine for me, but you may want to install programs which take more space.

A:How show the date in the system tray having the small icons enabled

The reason that you do not get the date showing is because the taskbar is thinner when using the small icons. However, if you unlock the taskbar (right click the taskbar to access the menu) you can expand it so that it is effectively two rows, the date and time will now show.

Dear Forum Users,

I have two HDs in my system:

1. WD Caviar Blue 500GB (OS Drive)
2. WD Caviar Green 1TB

I've read that enabling write-caching may speed up drive performance. I checked on my 1TB drive, it was already enabled. On my 500GB drive though it was disabled.

So I then decided to enable write-caching on my 500GB drive. I proceeded to do so without any apparent problems. However after doing a system restart I saw that it went back to being disabled again.

I've tried this several times already, same thing each time!

Enable write caching restart write caching disabled again.

Does anyone have an idea why this is happening? How to fix this?

Hi,

The available disk space on the pc with the warning issue is probably too small to store both backup images (MR) and system protection image.

Actually you do. System Protection is a form of Shadow Copying.

Furthermore, it's not wise policy to store backups on the same physical drive as your system. Still better than nothing but all in all not sound practice.
Better to store back up on an ext. removable drive.

In the mean time you could reduce the amount of space allocated to System Protection and see if that helps any.

My Toshiba Notebook (x64) (running Windows 7) has stopped being able to open/run programs. I've been using safe mode to try and find a cure, and safe mode works fine. I ran a few antivirus programs that detected a few things, but none of them solved this issue. Using System Restore seems to be the only thing I can really do, but I've been having some troubles with it.

Only one System Restore point shows up, and it's only from a few days ago, which isn't far back enough to fix my problem (I've already tried restoring it to that point). There are no other options as you can see here and here.

I tried to create my own restore point, but ran into some problems. When I go into "System" the "System Protection" option is missing. I only have these three options:

When I use the search bar to find it instead, "Create a restore point" comes up, but when I click and it opens System Properties, the "System Protection" tab is missing.

When I looked it up, someone had suggested running Regedit and checking HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR but I couldn't get that far.

If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I defragged my registry (castigate me later, please), and well, my system crashed. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a Lenovo laptop, and on startup, I get a blue screen claiming that the OS couldn't boot, and the option to try a system repair. After analysis, it says that it can't repair the system automatically, and offers more advanced options. I can try a system restore, but after selecting a restore point (clearly the one created before defragging the registry), system restore says that I must enable system protection on the drive. I don't remember disabling it, and I don't know how to enable it without access to the desktop.
From those same advanced recovery options, I can use a system image recovery (don't have an image to recover from), the windows memory diagnostic (it claims there's no memory error), or the command prompt. I know very little about using the command prompt, but I can open the task manager at least, though not explorer.exe or msconfig.exe (the prompt claims they're invalid commands).

A:Need help system protection not there on system properties

Hi,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Run Regedit and check the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR.

If the key is present and has any value other than 0 then system restore is disabled and the system protection tab will be hidden.

Viruses often disable this by setting this registry key. Often they will also disable the task manager and regedit too.

If you get a message saying regedit has been disabled by your administrator then it's quite possible you have been targeted by a virus, in which case a full scan of your system is a good idea.


As always, before making changes to your registry, back it up.

How does System Protection work...does it save information to a separate partition?

I have a 7gb partition on my drive that I do not know what it is for. I deleted it and was am thinking of adding it to my main C: partition. Did destroy the System Protection partition?

A:System Protection?

That partition was likely put there by the manufacturer to help you restore the PC to factory specs if you ever needed to do that.

If you in fact deleted the partition and do not have "recovery disks", you will have problems restoring to factory specs.

Do you have any install discs at all? What happens if your hard drive fails in 30 minutes?

System protection is not the same as "system restore", which you may be thinking of. System restore returns the operating system to the way it was on the date the restore point was made---typically somewhere in the last couple of weeks-----not to factory specs. System restore points are stored on your C drive along with Windows.

When following the thread a program I have never heard of, HijackThis was mentioned several times.

If HijackThis can do the previous: fix report and whatever else; then what additional advantages does it provide the user that Spybot doesn't support, and would U use this in place of Spybot S&D or something else.
 

A:system protection?

It is not an automated tool, and provides no judgement or recommendations on removal. It simply shows what is present in several locations of the registry and file system - you have to know what you're looking at to use it to delete entries.
When I think it's preferable that dll's are unregistered etc., I will often recommend that SpyBotSD be run first and then use HJT to look and see if it missed something.

I just finished "cleaning out" an old Dell desktop. I deleted a lot of files. I don't intend to un-delete any of them (couldn't anyway, because I did a wipe of the free space), but the thought occurred to me, what if I wanted to un-delete one of them? In the old DOS days, I could do that without software (like Recuva). But with NTFS file systems, I note that there is a system setting called System Protection that provides a built-in way to recover deleted files, as long as you haven't overwritten them. I checked the settings for this app on my desktop. System Protection is Off for both of my drives, so that's apparently the default.

Question: What are the downsides of turning that On? My guess would be that it burdens the MFT with more entries, thereby slowing drive performance. Is that true and are there any other downsides?

A:System Protection

The only real downside to turning on System Protection is that is consumes some disk space but you can control that. The impact on performance is insignificant.

Thank you for your post.Probably you have one HDD drive and C:\, D:\, etc.. - these are not called drives but partitions - part of the whole thing - one HDD. No problem. The D:\ partition is usually your recovery partition and Windows System Restore is off there for a reason - you should not and need not to attempt to turn it on. This drive should have no changes usually - its purpose is to keep the original version of your operating system, settings, drivers, original image and to be able to restore your PC to factory default condition.  Let me know if you have any other questions.

Hey all, I've ran into a huge problem... My aunt dropped off her family computer yesterday and I've been working on it for a few hours now and to say the least I'm completely stumped. There's this fake anti virus program called Protection System which does it's thing, I'm sure you know all about it. Anyway, I've done a few hours worth of research, read countless "fix it" articles and forum post and nothing has worked yet. At this point I need to rest my eyes and my mind and ask you all for your help.The biggest problem is no programs that could solve the problem or aid in solving the problem work. The real anti virus was disabled and broken, malwarebytes wouldn't install so I renamed it, it then installed halfway before freezing. I played around with that for a while and I got it to install. Couldn't run the program after that, so I renamed the that. It finally opened but as expected the scan shut the program down. After it crashed during the scan malwarebytes was completely inoperable, couldn't even delete it with out a restart. At that point I had enough, I was preparing to post a topic in the "HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal" forum but after several attempts it appears that not even your DDS Tool works. I'm just so frustrated right now...To clear a few things up. I've been trying everything in and out of safe mode, same results.

Why can I not save restore  points when I have it set to restore previous versions of files only?  It shows system protection turned off when set this way. Only way it will show turned on is if I have setting and files turned on.

Hi -
System Restore is just that - System Restore -
I have not been able to set mine to restore only one file / folder to an earlier time, unless I have a backup made.
 
However I may have missed a setting that I could not find, but I can only set mine to System Restore -
 
More general information ..............

 What files are changed during a system restore ?
 

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files created under any user account on your computer. System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file.
NOTE :: If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.

 
Always create a backup of your system prior to doing any System Restore
 
Open System Restore and follow the links in that area as to what you will restore and what you can do there.
There is a lot of helpfull information listed there -
 
Thank You -

Hello everyone ... Really hoping you can help me.

I use Firefox browser and gmail or yahoo for mail. I have Fix-It Professional 6 which I just ran for any viruses, mal ware, spy ware and ad ware.

For about the past week or so, every time I start my machine, I get a window called Windows PC Defender inside of which is a"My Computer" window. I cannot close this window but I can minimize it and open an additional window.

This address appears in the location window -

In the My Computer it shows the Windows shield logo along with System Folders, My Documents, Hard Drive and Security. Next to each, flashing in red is notification that I have 5 viruses in the System Folders, 7 in My Documents, 12 in my Hard Drive and that "Security has been damaged by virus" in the Security.

Hi Cailleach Echo, welcome to BC I have moved your topic to the "Am I infected? What Do I Do?" forum since you appear to be infected by a rogue security product. This will allow our members who specialize in malware removal to find your topic more easily.I've always been warned not to open anything that ends with ".exe"Sound advice. You're infected with some sort of rogue security program. These programs falsely warn that your computer is infected (like in the list of baddies you were given) and then prompt the user (you) to download a file to "clean" the computer. Do not download anything it asks you to. Do not purchase any program it recommends. It is a scam and will only serve to make the situation worse.

Ive noticed every once in a while that my system protection keeps turning it self on, even though I have manually shut it off?

What could be affecting this? (I want it off because I back up regularly)
 

A:System Protection...

I don't have an answer but do have some advice.

System protection is different than backing up data, system protection backs up critical system registries and other settings normal backups do not, it would be wise to leave this setting On.

Hello-
I am trying to fix a friends' laptop that appears to have been infected with Protection System malware. PC Info: Dell Vostro 1500, Windows XP Home, SP2.

At the moment, I cannot seem to get the laptop to access the internet, whether itís because of the virus or because it is not set up to access my cable modem. I have left it disconnected from our network to avoid any cross infections with my good pc. Can I download programs to a USB stick using the good pc, and transfer them to the sick pcís desktop- if you donít see a problem with this method, then Iíd prefer to continue using it.

When I try to install Malware Bytes from the .exe on the desktop, the install procedure seems to begin, then disappears completely from view, and doesnít even appear in Task Manager.

HijackThis seems to install ok from the desktop, but when I try to run the program, I can see it begin to list programs, but the after less than 2 seconds it, too closes and disappears.

Other issues: Restarting/Shut Down gets stuck and I have to hold down the power button to shut off.

Would greatly appreciate any help you can give.

Hi, all. First, thank you for everything you do. I've come to this site a couple of times over the years and your advice has been incredibly helpful. I really appreciate it.
Now I have my own problem with a malware issue.
My computer has become disabled. It boots to the desktop, but I cannot access anything with my mouse, and when I place the cursor in the taskbar, the hourglass icon appears. Sometimes the Protection System window would appear trying to tell me about some fake virus problems and to do an install.
I was able to delete any mention of Protection System from the registry through safe mode with command prompt, then regedit. That removed the Protection System screen from startup, but I still can't run any scans to send to you for review.
Nothing works! I have to unplug the machine to turn it off!
Is there any other way to use your recommended scanning programs to get this fixed?
I am running Windows XP with Service Pack 3.

Hey all,

I've had Windows 7 installed since 2009. Recently I've been getting this warning.



Not really sure why though, as I've never stored System Image backups on this drive. I always keep them on an external drive.
I've tried turning off System Protection then back on, this does remove the warning. But then when I create a new image the warning returns.
I've done various different scans, A/V, diagnostics and can't see anything wrong. Disks are working fine.

Anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing this warning?

A:System Protection Warning.

Backup Images are snapshots... The image process creates a restore point just like what happens when installing software or windows update patches. The restore point itself, so the situation on start of backup will be backed up.

I've used Windows 7 Home Premium x64 since 2009. I understand how to use System Protection. However, what I don't understand is why it would be useful for drives other than C:, where Windows resides.

If there is a tutorial somewhere on reasons why System Protection is useful on other drives, I would surely appreciate a reference to it.

A:Why Use System Protection On Drives Other Than C: ?

It`s useful if you also wanted to have restore points for those drives and if you had storage room to backup those drives.

It`s not turned on on other drives by default, windows just gives you the option to do so if you wanted.

  Spybot S&D 1.62 will protect your host file quite nicely, and, it has an on-demand malware scan.  I had to goto Spybot 2, it's like driving a bus where a Chevy or Ford station wagon would do.  For very good behind-the-scenes browser lprotection, I use SpywareBlaster [I only pay $10/yr for automatic-update/automatic enable all]. 
  Now, comes an Idea:  you have to balance functionality and security, not so much 50-50, rather, how much functionality and ease would you like, and, how much security would you like?  While they are not mutually exclusive, too much of one can cause problems for the Chair-person.  Not enough of one can cause problems for the Chair-person.  Just last night, I had to roll-back to a Dec 29 image 'cause too too much security attempts led to pretty much Windozzzzzzz and hee-haw in the thin blue line.

I recently had a power outage while Windows 7 (x64) was loading. System booted up fine. I went to do a system restore, but could not. When I go to select a restore point is says, "System Protection is turned off". I never turned it off and it will not let me turn it on. The C:\ clearly shows protection is turned on, but when I select system restore it says it is turned off.










I think I read most of the posts here on this issue, but no go. What I have tried:Manually create restore point- Works fine. Repeated many times.
.
Turned System Protection Off and then back On- No difference
Ran WMI.bet- No change
Deleted all restore points- No change
Ran VSS List Shadows- Got hits even though I had deleted all restore points
Verified VSS is on- I have seen posts to say set to manual and set to auto. I have done both. No difference.
SFC /SCANNOW- Found no integrity violations
Tried to do a Repair Install- Cannot. I am running SP1. Comes back saying it cannot be done.

It works the same way for that as in Windows 7 for me. When you turn system protection off, does currant usage drop to zero afterwards like below? This is not the same as what the max usage is set for. Max usage is just how much it can use when system protection is turned on.

I have an awful virus...please help me before my boyfriend gets home. He allowed me to use his computer and this Protection System 2010 virus has taken over.

It won't allow me to open Mbam or hijackthis...hijackthis will start and then just disappear.

I have tried everything that my feable mind can think of. I downloaded the SuperAntivirus, but it won't open and I can't delete it so I can't reinstall it.
I am working within safe mode with networking at this moment.

Please HELP!

Long story short, I bought a new laptop, and in the month I have had it, I've had to do continual restores because it was getting hung up on 15% at updates. Finally got that fixed, then I had to do another restore for an unrelated issue, and it restored it to prior to the update. Before I could go in to fix it again, it started updating and once again got hung up at 15%. After three hours, I finally shut down, just expecting to do another system restore. Now, it won't let me do anything. Repair and restore tell me that there was a problem and no changes were made, and it gives me restore points, but then tells me I have to enable system protection...which I can't boot into anything to do. Safe mode won't work. Nothing but command prompt works, and I am about to tear my hair out. Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it without a repair disk, that I conveniently do not have at this time? I contacted the company I ordered the computer from, and they are sending me the disks, but..I was hoping to be able to fix this without having to do a complete clean reinstall.

A:Enable system protection?

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Since the laptop is brand new I would recommend asking your warranty to take a look.

You don't want to mess with it so much that they VOID your warranty.

I have no system protection tab in System Properties box, hence I cannot create a restore point. Looking for the answer to get this tab enabled or reinstalled. I am logging in with Admin rights.

A:Missing System Protection Tab

Hello Doc, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Check in your registry at the location below to see if you have a DisableSR DWORD value in the right pane of the SystemRestore key. If you do, then delete the DisableSR DWORD, and restart the PC to see if that does the trick.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore

Hi, My cat has given birth to 4 beautiful kittens. Woo-Hoo.

Obviously i have taken photos of the cute little critters and transfered them to a folder on my pc.

I used G6 Utilities to rename and enumerate all the pictures. When i look in the folder now there are several pictures missing. Fortunately i have found them. Unfortunately i found them by showing Protected Operating System files.

After googling for a while i have only managed to find out how to disable the File System Protection for all of Windows. Before i attempt this i would like to know if it will allow me to recover the pictures or if it is just better to delete them and take new ones.

Or does anyone know of another way to remove this protection? Any software that may help?

Thanks in advance.

I am trying to do a system restore. When I get to the screen titled 'confirm disks to restore' it says 'you must enable System Protection on this drive'. I am unable to enable System Protection thru normal means because the tab isn't showing up. I searched the forum and found an answer in the following thread that I thought would help:

Can't access System Protection options

There's probably a value in the registry called "DisableConfig" or "DisableSR" at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore. Open regedit, browse to that key, and if either value exists, delete and reboot the PC. You should get your System Restore tab back after doing this.
Last edited by cluberti; 08-27-2010 at 05:55 AM.. Reason: Seems there's a second value - updating thread

Unfortunately, I have HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\

but no SystemRestore after that.

Can anyone help me????

A:Need to turn on System Protection

Hi garzon6, welcome to the forums

It sounds like 'Systems Restore' has been disabled. To enable it just follow the steps below...

1 Click Start and right-click 'Computer' & select 'Properties'

2 Select 'System Protection'

3 Click 'Configure'

4 Select the first option in the list then click 'Apply' then 'Ok'

Hope this helps
